Take Five
Linked by Tom Hanway 9 years ago: This tune has found its way into Irish traditional music circles, and I play it regularly with James Wickham (button accordion) at the Cryan's session in Carrick on Bannow, Co. Leitrim.

Speed the Plough
Linked by Tom Hanway 9 years ago: 'Speed the Plough' is a very old traditional tune that has morphed into many other tunes. This is for 5-string banjo enthusiasts who love a good fiddle tune from the days of yore.
